I recently put in a crower st. 2 cam and springs/retainers on my d16y8 99 civic ex. the power is sluggish below 3 k (about the same as stock) but after 3 k the power gains were tremenous. The tires easily break loose on turns at high rpms. The car was a biatch to get idling correctly though. major timing issues, you just have to play with it to get it right (and the idle screw). 2 thumbs up.

N/A cams and nitrous don't mix. Overlap will cause the nitrous to spray right out of the exhaust ports.

btw, about the idle. i was surprised that the lope was a lot less than i thought. maybe only 50 rpm up and 50 rpm down so 100 rpm at the very very most when it is cold. it pretty much sticks to 1100 rpm at idle. the car needs to be tuned with the cam though. i had i/h/e and adding the cam messed up the good ole a/f ratio big time. i run way too rich and i'm down to about 22 mpg. i'll be tuning it with a vafc tomorrow on a dyno.
